Sota and Nazir: Why are They 'Out of Place?'
Parshat Naso contains what appears to be a very strange progression of parshiot. After all, what logical connection exists between the duties of the Leviim, the laws of "korban chatat" and "sotah," the laws of "nazir" and "birkat kohanim," and the dedication ceremony of the Mishkan? To your surprise, this week's shiur will not explain why they are indeed connected. Instead, we will do exactly the opposite - we will explain why these parshiot do not follow in logical progression! To understand why, we must consider the 'nuts & bolts' of Sefer Bamidbar. That means that we will analyze the sefer (as usual) in search of its unifying theme. While doing so, we will uncover a rather fascinating pattern - unique to Sefer Bamidbar. A pattern that explains why many of its 'pieces' just don't seem to fit. Online:

The N'si'im: Why are They Repeated?
Did you ever notice the last pasuk in Parshat Naso? Probably not, but if you did, it most certainly would have bothered you! We'll begin this week's shiur by explaining why that pasuk 'should have bothered you.' Then we will suggest a solution that will help us understand both the structure of Parshat Naso and the importance of national unity. Online:
